not hear it. >> in response to the romney video, an obama video surfaced from 14 years ago in which he discusses market forces and competition, but also the redistribution of wealth. let's take a look. >> it is figuring out how we structure government systems that pool resources and facilitate some redistribution, because i actually believe in redistribution, at least a certain level to make sure everybody has got a shot. >> mr. sadler, do you agree with this notion of redistributing wealth from one side of americans to another site? >> i do not agree with that at all. i do not know the context, the full context of what he is saying, but that was 15 years ago. >> 14. >> 14 years ago. i do not follow that philosophy. i do not see any evidence, in spite of mr. cruz's claims, of him manipulating the public, as he suggests. >> mr. cruz, please respond -- do you believe he is saying he does not believe in redistribution? >> of course president obama believes in wealth distribution. been clear is that he supports president obama. this president has engaged in reckless fiscal policies. we hav

to ask president obama -- "if you did not turn around the economy within three years, you said in 2009, your presidency would be one term." see: let's jump over and the top question for mitt romney. host: would you like to ask the candidates as we go over the debate. the top story this morning on the front page that we are looking at right now, "middle- class detour." the story looks at local voters, saying that the next american president will be governing a shrinking middle class. people in that income range had a message for the president that transcended political ideology. the percentage of americans that fit into the middle income category was exacerbated in the 2000's as median family income shrunk. in colorado, where it started to raise in 2007, its stubbornly hung around 8% for the last year. it is the slower rate compared to household population overall. other articles look at the impact of the latino vote in colorado. let's hear what you have to say. bob is in new york city on the democratic line. caller: i have two questions for the candidates. why, in this day and age, are

. -- for obama this year in particular. >> the gap is the headline. very much so. >> question for all of you before we move to another clip that we have going to our point of how to move beyond winning and losing. wondering what would be the most important thing for me to look at what i am watching the debate? the debate is open, what should i look at in the beginning? >> my perspective would be the most important thing you want to look for is democratic leadership. how does this person perform democratic leadership? we have a set of conflicting expectations that the president the democratic or ordinary, someone we can relate to and would react like we would. someone who will subordinate himself or herself to the public will and be responsive servant. someone democratic and with the people, but also somewhat leaderly, someone who could take charge of public problems. those things have to come in a very delicate balance. that is often what kids overstepped. that is something i look at. you could think of times when it has been overstepped in one way or the other. george w. bush looking at his

obama just made -- i think he has had is time for the four years, and it seems like we are worse off than we have ever been. he has had his time to prove to us that he could do it, but he has not prove anything to us. the people on social security today are starving to death and he has not help us one bit. as far as the war in iraq, he says he has ended that. if he finds our man over there is still getting killed, why does and he just bring our man at home and get them out of theire? sir, i thank you for your time, and god bless you. >> on our debate hub at c- span.org, we have broken a speech down into various clips. as the rally started this afternoon in denver, president obama responded to some of the comments of mitt romney. here is how it looked this afternoon. [video clip] >> we also had our first debate last night. when i got onto the stage, i met this very spirited fellow who claimed to be mitt romney.

and spending policies are threatening the financial foundation of our country. every year since barack obama has been president,, the federal government has spent over a trillion dollars packard more than it has taken in. we have a $16 trillion national debt. we are mortgaging the a future of our children. the national debt today totals $50,000 for every man, woman, and child in in america. we can do better and we will be better when we elect mitt romney and paul ryan on november 6. president obama call would have us believe that this is somehow the new bubble. joe biden -- joe biden. there is the gift that keeps on giving. they would have us believe that somehow this is the normal. that this is the best america can be. they would have us be our best days as a nation are behind us. that up -- we don't believe that. we believe the 21st century will be another american century. we believe our best days are yet to come. we know that to do that, we have to have new leadership in washington d.c. and we need mitt romney and we need paul ryan.

being in denial. >> we did not go through the decade of george w. bush and the last four years of rock obama, but what they have had to deal with, in fairness, is 9/11, a couple of wars that require a lot of spending, the tax cuts of george bush -- i am not sure where you stood on those, but they did eat into the amount of money we had to spend -- and then the recession, which was some say close to a depression. did that time prevent us from being able to make deficits and debt a top priority? >> it should not have. it could have, but it should not have come out if people were thinking clearly, if they were well educated, if they even understood this whole damn thing, which they do not. if you say what percentage of the american people understand this, i would say it is a very low number. it to be everybody, and everybody should say this is my country. people should be very active about not letting anything damaged our country. the one thing we have not mentioned at all, there is no question at all in my mind, if we keep going this way, some nation is going to head over here to take us

than john mccain in 2008. that was arguably more difficult year for republicans. he has raised $40 million. within the campaign, on the high end, the reverse has happened. barack obama is raising less money than needed in 2008 as a sitting president appeared in 2008 it was $2,300 the max you could give up. this cycle is $2,500. at the end of august obama had raised 16 sermon from -- 16% from that group. romney is good at raising money to in part with $2,500. he has raised $102 million through the end of august from people who had maxed out on their donations. that is reflected in the super pacs. they give the max to him, but sold from their friends and colleagues. then they write a check for $100,000 or $200,000 or more to one of the super pacs. what does this mean for politics? does this increase transform politics going forward? it is a little complicated. one of the driving forces behind this but that some lower court decisions which allow outside money much easier access for airwaves. the barriers that were there in the post-watergate era that prevented corporations and people
